House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session

Subject: Healthy Babies Month in Pennsylvania
The March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation recognizes May 2016 as "Healthy Babies Month" to educate men and women about the importance of preconception and prenatal care, nutrition and a healthy lifestyle in order to enhance positive birth outcomes. Preconception care, in addition to early regular prenatal care, is a pregnant woman's first line of defense for protecting her baby. If problems arise, the earlier they are detected, the more likely they are to respond to treatment.

Please join me in recognizing May 2016 as "Healthy Babies Month" in Pennsylvania and encouraging men and women of childbearing age to prepare themselves both before and during pregnancy to birth healthy babies.
